In the land where you can see Russia from your front porch, Apple will open its first retail store. That’s right, Alaskans will soon have access to all of the retail goodness that Apple has to offer. A new location is set to open in the 5th Avenue Mall in Anchorage this Saturday.
Separately, Apple is also set to unveil four more stores this Saturday, including another US store and three international stores in Canada, Australia and Italy.
Even though Apple has finally set its retail gaze on Alaska, 9to5Mac notes that there are still seven US states without a single Apple store. These states include Arkansas, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming.
On top of the announcement of an Alaska location, Apple is set to open four more retail locations this weekend. Locations include:
- Fashion Place (Murray, Utah)
- Southland (Cheltenham, Victoria, Australia)
- Conestoga: (Waterloo, Ontario, Canada)
- I Gigli: (Florence, Italy)
Apple has begun an aggressive expansion of its retail presence worldwide, and with the unveiling of these five new stores, Apple has 23 more retail locations to unveil before it can reach its goal of 30 new stores by September 30th.
